Alright, here's my review:

Track one is an upbeat rocker with some cool lead guitar fills and a singer with a cool gruff voice singing about being tired of being a man.

Track two is a folky rant by a gruff voiced singer with a novel solution for today’s problems. Unfortunately, probably my least favorite track on this mix.

Track three is a groovy, stripped down rocker. Reminds me a bit of The Vaselines, but more rock ‘n’ roll.

Track four is a live track by a hyperactive, quirky New Wave kind of combo. Very impressive performance!

Track five starts with a Smiths sample, I believe, and is a catchy dance number with a female vocalist. Sounds like she’s singing “no hippie chick” on the chorus.

Track six is a droney (in a good way) number which I figure must be Stereolab. The vocals meander between the left and right channel through the entire song. Best listened to with headphones to get the effect.

Track seven must be Gary Numan/Tubeway Army.

Track eight is a pretty acoustic number which incorporates part of “My Guy” by Mary Wells.

Track nine is an atmospheric English folk-flavored number with a male vocalist. Very nice, probably my favorite track in this mix.


Very enjoyable mix. I liked almost every track, and most of it was unfamiliar to me.

A fun and entertaining mix, just what is needed right now.

1. Starts slowly, breathy simple melody, then the strings come in and I'm all in and loving it. As with a lot of this mix I think the voice is familiar but I can't come up with a good guess. Great start, a highlight.
2. Another familiar sounding voice, doesn't grab me as much as the first track but pretty good.
3. Fast paced cover of Get Along Cindy, a bluegrass standard. I've always liked this song and this is a good version.
4. Another familiar sounding singer, a lot going on musically, kind of a theatrical show tune.
5. A banjo attack, authentic singer, reminds me of Hazel Dickens, well done.
6. Is this Lucinda Williams. I like this a lot whoever it is. Very expressive voice. Another highlight.
7. This one sets a mood, tells a story. A deep world weary baritone voice. I like it but it's a little long.
8. Ah, rockabilly. This one hits all the marks, lots of echo, dripping with reverb. Love the tone of the guitar.
9. Sweet singing country lass. Again familiar, probably own this. Alison Krauss?
10. UK pub song, modern but authentic sounding. A little rough, I couldn't do an album but this is fun.
11. Roy Orbison, not familiar with the song. He had some great deep cuts.
12. Sets a mood, not picking up on the lyrics. Didn't make much of an impression.
13. British folk, sounds modern, this is well done all the way around. Great instrumentation.
14. A pleasant singer/songwriter tune, nice strings, good singer.
15. Finishing with another UK folk singer/songwriter, I'm going to guess he's Scottish. Strong finish, another highlight.

Thanks so much mixer! Looking forward to the reveal.

This is something of an obscurity but comes from the same album that served as my opening salvo in the Folk Cup - Val Stoecklein. People seemed to like it then but coupled with mitterings querying its folk credentials. To me the vpice has a lot of Fred neil going on and the arrangements have more than a hint of Nick Drake andthat's folk enough for me. His only album nd worth cecking out though OOP.


2. Another familiar sounding voice, doesn't grab me as much as the first track but pretty good.

An album I own but haven't really played in ages, but this cropped up on an episode of House which earned it another spin - The Frames

3. Fast paced cover of Get Along Cindy, a bluegrass standard. I've always liked this song and this is a good version.

How many comps like this do I own. Answer - LOTS. This one is entiled Corn Dodgers and Hoss Hair Pullers - subtitled Arkansas at 78RPM which probably tells you all you need to know.

4. Another familiar sounding singer, a lot going on musically, kind of a theatrical show tune.

British band Danny Wilson (yes they are a band).

5. A banjo attack, authentic singer, reminds me of Hazel Dickens, well done.

One of the underrated jewels of US folk - Hedy West

6. Is this Lucinda Williams. I like this a lot whoever it is. Very expressive voice. Another highlight.

Caroline Rose. The first album whence this is taken is great, but the two after are diminishing returns. It's like the rcord company got to her and moulded here into something horribly generic, chasing a hit record. Check out the debut though.

7. This one sets a mood, tells a story. A deep world weary baritone voice. I like it but it's a little long.

Back to the Folk Cup and Garnet Rogers may have cost me the crown as the track I really wantd to use only had one Yutube where the sound wasn't so great, but hey here he is again and I'm sticking by him.

8. Ah, rockabilly. This one hits all the marks, lots of echo, dripping with reverb. Love the tone of the guitar.

It may be modern retro but when it's done right I'm not complaining - Vince and The Sun Boppers

9. Sweet singing country lass. Again familiar, probably own this. Alison Krauss?

This is actally Janis Ian. Everyone knoes At right, but few it seems venture further.

10. UK pub song, modern but authentic sounding. A little rough, I couldn't do an album but this is fun.

I did wonder if i'd put 10 and 13 reversed on the mix, as this is most decidedly UK folk. Probably one of the closest things to Bellowhead if you like your folk rollicking and full on. Fausts.

11. Roy Orbison, not familiar with the song. He had some great deep cuts.

I knew you'd think this was Orbison as probably would I without knowing. ANyway incredibly this isn't roy. The guys name is Marcel Rielso. He prbably plays up to the Orbison imersonater tag by inclusing some Oribsion songs on the album but then the remainder including this are written buy him and it nails the whole feel of peak classic Orbison


12. Sets a mood, not picking up on the lyrics. Didn't make much of an impression.

Some early-ish John Martyn, who I'll concede you prbably eithr love or hate

13. British folk, sounds modern, this is well done all the way around. Great instrumentation.

Following on from 10, this is US indie - rather than Brit folk, being Eef Barzelay of clem Snide, a solo ep

14. A pleasant singer/songwriter tune, nice strings, good singer.

Velvet Crush

15. Finishing with another UK folk singer/songwriter, I'm going to guess he's Scottish. Strong finish, another highlight.

Kris Drever, also performs with the band Lau also worth checking out. He is inded Scottish, Glad to see all those episodes watching grouhdskeeper WIllie didn't gp to waste :D

Thanks so much mixer! Looking forward to the reveal.
As ever your#e welcome. Aways a pleasure.

1. Val Stoecklein - SOunds Like Yesterday
2. The Frames - Seven Day Mile
3. Pope's Arkansas Mountaineers - Get Along Home Miss Cindy
4. Danny Wilson - You Remain An Angel
5. Hedy West - Sally Carter
6. Caroline Rose - Tightrope Walker
7. Garnet Rogers - Blue Smoke
8. Vince and The SUn Boppers - Bye To The City
9. Janis Ian - This Train Still Runs
10. Faustus - While Gamekeepers Lie Sleeping
11. Marcel Riesco - LOnely Ble Dreams

OK rounding things off, review of disc from Mr Boom containing some old favourites and some new delights.

1) Can’t go wrong with Nils.
2) Or indeed Patti. Patti and Joni have been mainstays of my listening for more years than I care to remember and probably the two artists I feel an emotional attachment to.
3) Don’t recognise this one but like it. Doesn’t sound necessarily like either but stylistically reminds me of Ray Davies and Ronnie Lane.
4) This is great. Starts off as some funky southern style gospel soul, but that’s just counterpoint and main song kicks in over the same rock solid funk drum beat. Love it.
5) Some blues with a hint of Shuggie Otis style pysch in the mix. Nice.
6) First of two bona fide soul classics. The Persuaders – Thin Line Between Love and Hate
7) Followed by , possibly my quickest Mix Club spot ever. About two seconds in…. Freda Payne – Band of Gold
8) I still don’t know whether I love or hate this. Lazy velvetisms usually incur my wrath and let’s face it this is clearly someone who’s heard Sweet Jane more than twice ! but I like the guitar part and there’s some charm and humour in the lyrics that’s winning me over (maybe).
9) Another fairly instant spot. Always loved this and Jordan is probably my favourite Sprout album.

1 Cry Tough - Nils Lofgren
2 Summer Cannibals - Patti Smith
3 Lonely Planet Boy - New York Dolls
4 Standing Outside a Broken Phone Booth With Money In My Hand - Primitive Radio Gods
5 Revolution (Pts. 1 and 2) - Nina Simone
6 Thin Line Between Love and Hate - The Persuaders
7 Band of Gold - Freda Payne
8 How the West Was Won - Peter Perrett
9 Doo-Wop In Harlem - Prefab Sprout


Track 3 was the New York Dolls and Track 5 was Nina Simone, Track 8 former Only One Peter Perrett and the title trac from his solo album How the West Was Won. Track 4 was the band Primitive Radio Gods with a pretty big hit back in 1996. Agree with you on Jordan: The Comeback - its a major masterpiece in my book !
